Chief's Story...
Chief, oh' Chief, what an incredible personality that dances inside your happy soul. Under a year and just bubbling with enjoyment over all the simple things life can offer ... the rays of sun, the gentle push of the wind as Chief stretches out in the cool grass. A lover of all people with a curiosity for the world as it passes him as he watches from his favorite spot next to YOU. Chief may be missing an eye but he is able to see with his heart which makes up for the loss. Found lost and alone as a stray suffering from a traumatic injury to his head which eventually cost him an eye. But that does not stop our boy. Good with people, cats and dogs but ultimately has a heart for people. Currently looking for his forever home so that he can start his second chance. Who will blaze that trail with Chief by their side?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Chief, a Hainesville Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Hainesville, or seeking a Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Hainesville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Hainesville already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Hainesville breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Hainesville paves the way for another one to be saved.
